After the disappointment of Tuesday's postponed match we are back on the road on Saturday to face Sleaford Town in what is a back to back fixture, as we host them the following Saturday.
Manager Reece Limbert gave us his feelings on the match and an update on the squad ahead of the weekend.
"Saturday's game against Sleaford will be a challenging test against a tough side who will be hoping to put a late run together for the playoffs. They’ve got some excellent players and we know we have to continue our good form if we’re to salvage a result on Saturday".
Yellows last match at home against Eastwood gave them another valuable point after Eastwood scored their equaliser in added time and Limbert was positive about that and the season ahead.
"We’re coming off the back of two 1-1 draws against promotion chasing sides which could have easily been two wins if decisions and chances fell our way, so we have to take confidence from these results into Saturday and remain positive that we can get something from a tricky away trip. I’m feeling optimistic heading into the final third of the season and I’ve seen enough from the squad we’ve assembled over recent weeks that gives me hope we can start to push on now. We have to look at the positives and we’re a lot harder to breakdown, the new signings have made a huge impact in both home games and we’re competing against top opposition. I’ve said recently that we have to be better in the final 3rd and we’re creating more chances and have certainly converted more of them. We must continue this if we are to have a chance of surviving come April".
Saturday will prove to be a real challenge but there was good news regarding recent injuries. "It’s great to have Ayleal Dill back in the squad going forward. He made his return on Saturday from injury and I know the quality that he brings us. Sam Dunn looks to be returning from injury too, and despite Tuesday nights game against Ashby being postponed, it allows for a couple of lads to recover from knocks picked up last Saturday. Daniel Odunaiya sustained an injury in training last week and we’re unsure at this stage how long he may be out for. We will assess him over the next couple of weeks as to when he can return for us as he’s been terrific since he signed. Connor Whiles left the club this week and we wish him all the best and thank him for his time with us".
